Auxerre vs Brest – Ligue 2: Auxerre hosts the 2nd best team playing away from home in the league.
Auxerre is in 12th place. However, we can’t get fooled by that, because they have been improving their results and they are currently the most in form team in the league, with 18 points in 8 matches.
They are unbeaten on their last 8 matches and they’ve played against teams such as Nimes and Lorient, so they are heavily moralized.
At home, their defence is super strong, with only 11 goals conceded, which results on less than 1 goal conceded per match,
and an attack that has also been improving, which also gives me confidence that they will perform well against a Brest that also plays better away from home.
After a disappointment, on the lost against Tours, Brest now wants to respond with a good result against Auxerre.
They clearly have a point in their favour, being the 2nd best team playing away from home.
However, this match will be tough, because despite scoring a lot of goals away from home, in 7 of their matches they couldn’t score more than 1 goal, having failed to score in 3 of them,
which means their gaol average is heavily inflated by the 2 matches where they’ve scored 4 goals, having that way 22 goals scored, in 39 goals on total.
Their defence, playing away from home, tends to concede, only keeping a clean sheet in 3 matches.
Auxerre vs Brest – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Banking on a team that, when they score, they score heaps, and that is inconsistent against a solid defence isn’t a very good idea.
Considering that the home side hasn’t lost yet in 2018 and is in great form, and a somewhat unstable Brest, I expect Brest struggling to score against an extremely motivated Auxerre, due to the results they’ve been getting.
This way, I’ll go with Auxerre here.
